The figurine ‘Elvis Presley’ is made of the finest porcelain that is glazed with a delicate wax layer. This finish gives the sculpture its tender and very life like expression. This technique created especially by Hildegard Günzel is a characteristic of Hildegard Günzel’s doll art. Elvis is wearing a blond real hair wig and he has handmade blue glass eyes from Lauscha/Germany.
He is aprox. 80 cm in the high(which means 31 and 1/2 inches) tall. Head with shoulder-plate, arms and legs are from porcelain with wax on it. He has a stuffed cloth body with an armature in it
‘Elvis Presley’ is limited to 35 dolls worldwide. He is officially licensed and a very special highlight of your collection. Of course we will also hand you a collector’s certificate for your doll.
Hildegard Günzel has received more than 200 awards and honors in the past 40 years for her exquisite doll art. She lends her distinction to the doll art worldwide by her work. Welcome to her world that makes dreams come true and take little Elvis by his hand.
A tiny two-year-old boy is standing in between his parents, dressed up for the family photograph. He is the pride and joy of his mother Gladys who adores him as much as he adores her. To keep the little man in a good mood, she gives him the peanut that he is keeping in his mouth, whilst the photographer pressed the release button.
This little boy was brought up in a very loving but also very poor environment. He went on to make music history in the future.. ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ made him an international star in 1956. Elvis Presley still is an icon, known widely over the borders of the USA nearly 40 years after his way too early passing. As an entertainer he broke every record. Nobody ever represented his country as proudly as Elvis Presley did. In more than 33 movies and documentaries, on countless audio recordings and on relentless tours across the world and in the USA. He still retains an eternal place in the hearts and in the memories of his fans.
So catch this moment of little Elvis, surrounded by the love of his parents, long before he became the star that would inspire the world, was a fond pleasure to Hildegard Günzel. She grew up with Elvis music, like so many of us and recalls a lot of pleasant memories from this time. For more than three decades – from the candy pink 50’s to the glittering 70’s, Elvis didn’t only excite the US audience, but also his fans in Germany.
With this very special sculpture Hildegard Günzel makes it possible for the greatest Elvis fans among us to get a small glimpse of how Elvis’ mother felt, when she looked into his beautiful blue eyes, all her adoration for him apparent.
